Chapel Hill Plan of Care

The plan of care is one of the most important documents in providing senior care in Chapel Hill. It is designed in close collaboration between our nurse, family members, and any other healthcare professionals involved in the care of the client. The care plan is devised to reflect the needs and wants of the client and the family, covering anything from simple companionship to complex personal care. It is made to reflect the length and frequency of services, types of tasks (such as bathing, dressing, grooming, meal planning and preparation, transportation, shopping, exercise assistance, medication reminders, etc.), and the duties that the caregiver(s) is required to perform to keep clients happy, safe, and comfortable. The care plan also includes details about client history, family dynamics, and any special instructions regarding their care. Periodically, our nurse makes quality assurance visits to the client’s residence and updates the care plan as client’s needs change. One copy of the most updated care plan is always kept at the client’s residence for the family to review, others are given to the care team involved in the care for the client. Through its careful construction, our Chapehome care agency's unique and detailed plan of care helps us to provide the most comprehensive care to our valued clients.
